Sheridan Tote ~ FREE PDF pattern

Hello lovelies, happy Friday to you all!

What strange times we're living in, aren't we? We've been practicing social isolation in order to help flatten the curve this whole week and are expecting to keep doing it for the next couple of weeks. 

I'm sure a lot of you are in the same situation so I thought you might appreciate a new tote bag pattern to work on :). And, since it's not business as usual for almost any of us, I decided to make this a FREE pattern, available to all.


Pretty fun, right? Sheridan Tote is a beginner friendly tote bag with a fabulously large front pocket and super chic leather handles, plus the optional addition of rivets and heavy duty snap closure.


The tote can be made using just one print or you can mix and match two or more prints if you wish. With simple tote like this it's super fun to play around with fabric placement.


You can also substitute leather handles with webbing ones, or you can even make your own fabric handles. Lots of options, I'm telling you :)

Finished size: 11'' wide on bottom /14 ½'' wide on top X 12'' tall X 4'' deep

You can download the pattern by clicking here.

I hope you have fun sewing up this pattern, can't wait to see your Sheridan Totes. Please share your finished totes on Instagram using #sotakpatterns and #sheridantote.

Happy sewing friends, stay safe and healthy. 

Hugs. Svetlana
